Hydrogen is an emerging energy carrier and one of the main raw materials in the chemical, petrochemical, and refining industries. Its production with lower environmental impact necessitates the use of renewable energy sources, such as biomass. Bio-oil, the liquid product formed from fast pyrolysis of biomass, can be considered as one of the most promising renewable feedstocks for both centralized and distributed production of hydrogen. This chapter discusses the aspects of hydrogen production from bio-oil via catalytic steam reforming in gaseous phase. The main focus is on the catalytic materials developed, the reactor systems used in relation to problems currently encountered, and the challenges to future research and development. The approach to the production of hydrogen from bio-oil also includes a life cycle analysis for the assessment of the environmental impact of hydrogen production via this route.
